On What Could Quite Rightly Pass for a Fetish: Some Thoughts on Whether “Every Christian Should ‘Quite Rightly Pass for an Atheist’”

In this essay, Ben Suriano responds to Jon Stanley’s claim that there are at least two (very biblical) ways that every Christian would do well to “quite rightly pass for an atheist.” The essay argues that every Christian should rather “quite rightly pass for a Christian” because the predominant form of atheism is in fact the core metaphysical and ontological assumption that makes possible the imperial logics operative in both the Roman and modern order.
